Esk Valley Hawke's Bay Syrah (2018)

Priced sharply, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was harvested from 12 to 25-year-old vines and matured for 14 months in French oak barriques and puncheons (15 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is vibrantly fruity and supple, in a medium to full-bodied style, with concentrated, ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, showing excellent complexity, harmony and length. Delicious young.
